Australia Getting Dumber?
Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald, a leading leftist newspaper from Down-Under, has asked so-called ‘journalist’ Richard Neville to investigate the question of: “Who Killed Nick Berg?”
Neville, who is not taken in by the over-simple explanation that terrorists killed Berg, has figured out that it was – you guessed it – us! The CIA was apparently prompted to have Berg arrested in Iraq when they saw a list of anti-war protesters on a conservative website that included Berg’s father. Writes Neville:
The clip was first "discovered" on an Islamic website in Malaysia. Its Arabic title reads "Abu Musab al-Zarqawi shown slaughtering an American". al-Zarqawi is a 38-year-old Jordanian militant who fled to Iraq in 2001 after reportedly losing a leg in a US missile strike. al-Zarqawi's face is widely known and he credits himself with the deed, so why a mask?The timing of the video was brilliant for the West. Media pundits judged the crime a deeper evil than the systemic torture of innocent Iraqis. But some people sensed a rat. But if it was not al-Qaeda, who? Surely not Uncle Sam. That's too dark, even for the CIA.On March 7, 2004, two weeks before his arrest in Mosul, an “enemies list” had been posted on a conservative website, FreeRepublic.com. This list was compiled from signatories to an anti-war petition, and its implied purpose was to encourage readers to harass those it named.Berg’s father was on that list, as was the family firm, Prometheus. This information may well have triggered the arrest of Berg in Iraq.
I just new we did it. Once again, Australia has provided us with help the likes of which we could not do with out. One can easily see why it is considered such an important country in the modern world.
